Holidays & Observances in Colombia

Colombia is a Spanish-speaking country in South America. Its culture is derived from Spanish, African, and Native cultures. A vast majority of Colombians are Christian, most practicing Roman Catholicism. Catholic holidays and saint days are very important in Colombia and are practiced across the country. The most important is probably Christmas, which is celebrated for several weeks starting in mid-December and ending on Epiphany, or Three Kings Day as it is known in Latin America. Some Colombians celebrate Three Kings Day similarly to how many others celebrate Christmas, with family get-togethers and gift exchanges.
